As campaign season ends, signs need to come down

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— The countdown clock has started for people to get rid of their campaign signs in Albuquerque.
According to a city ordinance, signs must be taken down 10 days after an election.
If the sign is placed on someone's property, cleanup is ultimately left up to that property owner.
People can report signs that are up after the 10-day deadline to 311. Typically, the city will ask that property owner to remove their signs.
City officials said the Solid Waste Management Division will handle any illegally placed signs.
Some individual campaigns have told KOB that they plan to send their volunteers out to collect the signage.
